Another one of my favorite Simple Fit Forty recipes is this delicious Chicken Avocado Burger. It is so delicious, and SO healthy, and they are loaded with fresh avocado, shredded chicken breast, and lightly seasoned. Let your friends go and eat those tricked out double cheeseburgers while you indulge in this flavor explosion that will keep your hunger satisfied and your waistline slim.
Let me tell you…this chicken avocado burger is downright amazing. I’m not even lying. If you have never had one of these, I honestly don’t know what you are waiting for. In fact, it’s a favorite healthy recipe that I love to indulge in, and it helps me stay away from those loaded out cheeseburgers. Want to know why I choose these over a regular burger?
As we get older, our metabolism changes and things start piling on. I can remember sitting down at the table and eating whatever I wanted without having to worry about fitting in my clothes the following week. (My favorite go to meal was a Big Mac and fries!) As I have aged, boy, has that eating habit changed. Now I live by the motto “A minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips!” Things just don’t stay the same, dang it.
That’s totally fine, because I have a plan. You can still be fit and healthy and eat well. You just have to watch what you are putting on your plate and what you are drinking. Even some so called “healthy smoothies” are filed with junk and HIGH in sugar. It’s why I decided to create my Simple Fit Forty Lifestyle program.

This delicious Chicken Avocado Burger is made with:
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 2 Tbsp EVOO
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1 lb ground chicken
- 1 large diced avocado
- 1 tsp cilantro
- 1/4 cup diced purple onion
- salt and pepper to taste
- romaine lettuce buns (optional)
Modified version of Avocado Salsa:
- diced avocado
- diced tomato
- diced purple onion
Warm a skillet on medium heat.
In a medium bowl mix together almond meal, egg, ground chicken, avocado, cilantro, onion, and salt and pepper. Using your hands, put together medium-thick burgers.
Place olive oil into heated skillet and swirl. Then place the chicken avocado burgers into skillet. Heat for five minutes on each side, or until cooked thoroughly. If they are super thick patties, place in the oven on 350 for 10 minutes to allow to fully cook through.
Serve on a romaine lettuce bun topped with the modified avocado salsa and with a healthy side of sweet potato fries. So good!
